Always Ticking

Alexander S. Peak

I listen as my clocks tick on

Twirling into the future, leaving me in the wind

Dragging me along for the ride, always a second behind

At least a dozen of them, hung arbitrarily around my room

Some of them have stopped ticking

Like stopping time, we leave them in the past

Always ticking, these clocks of mine are

Unsynchronised, I listen to their song

I have nothing better to do with my time.
